Visitors From the Future

From the press release:
"Women were the 20th century's suppressed majority. The suppressed majority of the 21st century are the elderly ones. As the popular cult of youth has made younger generations vanish into comfort and conformism, the future then belongs to the elders!"

The initial performance took place at contemporary art festival Gooseflesh (which at time was the most edgy and prominent art event). Idea was to challenge of the status quo of rather elitist understanding of contemporary art audience. Preparations consisted of contacting the pensioner organizations to offer the free tour to the art festival, then organizing the bus trip and performing as group guides, introducing and, if needed, explaining the events, initiating and moderating feedback-discussions. During the tour, the group participants were kindly asked to wear the specially designed T-shirts as their uniform.
